The Friday Stand-In 2016

Vusi Thembekwayo talks to the seeds of Sankara, Biko, Luthuli and Suzman

South African entrepreneur and motivational speaker, Vusi Thembekwayo, kicked-off his #FridayStandIn show with a heart-warming message for young people.

The "Rockstar of public speaking", was really in charge of the mic, there wasn't a single sign of nervousness.

We captured some moments of Vusi slaying- from the exciting moment when he arrived to the building, to discussing serious issues hosting the Redi Tlhabi show. See Facebook gallery below....

Vusi hosted a panel discussion with aspiring young entrepreneurs; Boitumelo Mafikoe, Lwandile Booi and Lumko Mpande, on the ins and outs of Entrepreneurship in this country.

Vusi asked South African artist Simphiwe Dana and researcher Leslie Dikeni, what does it mean to be black?

He ended on a high note, exploring his obsession for cars with Mario Casciani from Race! South Africa.

Watch Vusi reflecting on his show with Sizwe Dlhomo below....
